MI vs LSG Three-player battles to watch out for Today Match 67 IPL 2024


IPL 2024 MI vs LSG: In the 67th match of the 2024 Tata Indian Premier League, five-time winners Mumbai Indians are set to play host to the KL Rahul-led Lucknow SuperGiants today at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium. This match will be the final one of the season for both the teams and both franchises will be looking to end their IPL 2024 season on a winning note.

Lucknow has a slight chance of qualifying for the playoffs but for that to happen, they have to win the game against Mumbai by a massive margin which will help boost their Net Run Rate and the improved Net Run Rate will allow LSG to enter the top four.

Mumbai Indians on the other hand were the first team to get eliminated from the current edition of the IPL but they will be looking to throw cold water on Lucknow’s playoff plans by defeating them in the upcoming match. A win against LSG will mean that the Hardik Pandya-led team will get the opportunity to end their miserable IPL 2024 campaign on a positive note. Ahead of this fascinating encounter between MI and LSG, let’s take a look at three player battles to watch out for.

MI vs LSG: Three player battles to watch out for:

The current edition of the IPL has not been a good one for Suryakumar Yadav as he missed the initial games of the season due to an ankle injury. He made his comeback to the playing 11 in the middle phase of IPL 2024 and since his comeback, the 33-year-old has performed well only if he has properly settled at the crease. He has been dismissed cheaply in a lot of games and his getting dismissed early on has been a cause of concern for Mumbai as well as Team India. Nonetheless, the 33-year-old is still the number one T20 International batter in the world and he can bring the game in the favor of his team with his 360-degree shots.

LSG skipper KL Rahul will rely on leg spinner Ravi Bishnoi to get the crucial wicket of SKY and currently, the LSG spinner is the second highest ranked Indian bowler in the ICC Men’s T20i Bowling Rankings and he will be raring to perform well against MI and dismissing Surya will help Bisnoi to prove the selector’s decision of not including him in India’s squad for the 2024 T2p World Cup wrong.

  1. Mohsin Khan vs Rohit Sharma

Rohit Sharma started the IPL 2024 campaign on a really good note with the bat but he has failed to deliver in the last five games. He is in search of his lost form and the Indian captain will be looking to play a good knock against Lucknow and give assurance to the Indian Cricket Team fans that he can still play outstanding knocks for the Men in Blue.

Rohit though has a weakness against left-arm fast bowlers and in the previous LSG MI encounter, Mohsin Khan got the better of him with a beauty. Lucknow skipper KL Rahul is likely to hand the ball once again to Mohsin to get the wicket of Indian captain Sharma and dismissing Rohit once again will boost the confidence of the Lucknow Super Giants seamer. The battle between Rohit Sharma and Mohsin Khan will decide which team gets the early momentum in the match and early momentum will surely give a major boost to both sides.

The current edition of the IPL has not been a good one at all for KL Rahul as a captain and his slow approach with the bat has also been questioned in recent times. In Lucknow’s final IPL 2024 match against Mumbai, Rahul will be hoping to let the bat do the talking and shut the mouth of his critics once again.

But, it’s not going to be easy since he will be up against one of the world’s best fast bowlers, Jasprit Bumrah. The Indian seamer is in some really dangerous form with the ball as he has been picking up wickets with an unbelievable consistency. The 30-year-old will be hoping to have a good final IPL 2024 match and dismissing the opposition captain will surely be his number one priority.
